Simple tips to help add value to your house

For anyone who owns the property and specifically the house that they live in, there is always something quite special about doing work that will add value to the property. You might not be planning to sell your place, but it is always great to know that the value contained in your asset is increasing – ideally at a pace that is faster than you are having to spend on it. With this in mind, what are the tricks and tips that can be implemented to help add value to a property to ensure that you don’t just keep up with the market, but that you gain on it? Here are a few simple ideas to help you add that value:

Think about your car

While we are here to talk about your house, it might be a good thing to start out thinking about your vehicle. Where will it park and how can this be done better. If you park in the street, is there a way to facilitate off-street parking? If you park in the driveway, can it be converted to a carport? If you already have a carport, could you look for garage doors Melbourne has plenty of places that could supply these second hand or new, and convert the carport into a garage? The focus here is upgrading on the existing and making something that is more desirable and valuable. Most property owners tend to own cars, and most car owners tend to want to park their vehicles in the safest and most sheltered environments. Provide that and you are onto a winner.

The garden

It goes without saying that a garden is on the outside of a house and as such, it is the place that creates the first impression whenever somebody comes to visit. Not least a potential buyer or the person who comes to evaluate the house. The point is, a beautiful garden takes time to create, but it doesn’t have to be expensive. Plant indigenous vegetation and spend some quality time maintaining and nurturing the garden and you will have a little piece of paradise right outside your front door. You will also have something that adds exponential value to your property without requiring any structural changes or investment.


It is quite amazing what a coat of paint can do for a house. If you think that your home is looking a little tatty or in need of some love, a simple coat of paint will do wonders in terms of making it all seem better. But make sure that it is done right. Surfaces need to be prepared and you shouldn’t give the job to just anyone. It needs to be done thoroughly and carefully. If budgets are tight you can also look to make a plan to do it section by section. Buy the paint in one go, it will last if stored correctly but then spread the job out over a few months (or even longer). This is certainly the case with inside the house, but it can apply to the external surfaces as well.
